Not unlike everyone over the age of 30 or that kid from Hereditary, cats and dogs often struggle with intense allergies. Thanks to dietary causes ranging from certain proteins like chicken or beef to other common pet food ingredients such as dairy or soy, skin issues may start to develop. If you frequently catch your pup gnawing at their paws or cat aggressively rubbing their eyes, there’s a pretty good chance that they’re suffering from untreated allergies. For dogs especially, this can manifest in some other, err, concerning ways.

Other non-skin-related symptoms can include digestive complications, weight loss, and lowering energy levels. Plus, seasonal and/or environmental factors including pollen, mold, and even grass may also be allergy triggers. To level up on the annoying scale, as the weather gets warmer, these conditions only tend to deepen

For many of my fellow aging millennials who haven’t found success with traditional medicine, aren’t keen on an influx of side effects, or straight up don’t have health insurance, holistic options are often the best route for pets struggling with stubborn allergies. These methods look at a pet’s overall health when combatting issues rather than attacking symptoms alone, making for a more organic solution without creating additional side effects. But when trying a new brand of treatments for our pets, it can be difficult to know where to start. So, we reached out to integrative veterinarian and The Wildest Collective member Dr. Lindsey Wendt for advice.

Her story is likely a familiar one for those dealing with mulish allergies. In early 2020, when Dr. Wendt’s dog was diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease, traditional treatments weren’t cutting it. It wasn’t until she turned to holistic options that her pup found lasting relief and ongoing comfort. This then led her to create Crystal Lotus Veterinary Care, a resource that provides all-encompassing and natural care designed for a pet’s unique needs. Needless to say, she’s an expert both professionally and personally. Below, Dr. Wendt’s recommendations for combatting the nuisance that is lingering pet allergies.

Four Leaf Rover Yeast Guard

“If you have a dog with brown staining on its nail beds, feet that smell like corn chips, or recurrent musty ear infections, they are most likely battling an overgrowth of yeast. This herbal blend helps to cleanse and detoxify gently. And if you are dealing with a chronic or more severe situation, consider their yeast guard plus that helps support the microbiome and targets the yeast biofilm.”

Note: This product is only appropriate for dogs.
